Naked B.C. man who jumped in Toronto shark tank pleads guilty to mischief
A British Columbia man accused of stripping naked and jumping into a shark tank at a Toronto aquarium has pleaded guilty to mischief.
David Weaver, of Nelson, B.C., was arrested and charged in October of last year, four days after the incident.
Police say he went to Ripley's Aquarium in downtown Toronto on Oct. 12, bought a ticket, then stripped naked and jumped into the facility's shark tank.
A large crowd was at the aquarium that night and some in attendance took videos of the incident.
The videos, which attracted international attention after surfacing on social media, show a naked man swimming in the tank with sand tiger sharks, sawfish and moray eels.
The man then starts to climb out of the tank before performing a back dive into the water.
